Health Impact News Comments: Our Facebook Page on Coconut Health generates a lot of coconut oil testimonies. One recent testimony came from Debra regarding her developmentally delayed grandson, who did not talk for the first three and a half years of his life. She has allowed us to publish her testimony.

I really am a firm believer in coconut oil and originally investigated it’s uses for MS patients. My youngest son was diagnosed 5 years ago and I was looking for a way to help him. I use coconut oil in all my cooking so everyone benefits. I also have a son with diabetes and it seems to help balance his blood sugar.

But let me tell you about Matthew, my (now) 5 year old grandson. When he came to live with me, he was one cranky little boy. At 16 months, he didn’t sleep long, when he did sleep. His cheeks were always really rosy, and he had a very short attention span.

I just stepped back for a while and observed how my son was handling him, feeding him, caring for him, thinking maybe, as a new dad, and dealing with a new MS diagnosis of his own, he could have been doing something wrong. But I found nothing he was doing wrong. He was excellent with this little guy.

Still we had wild behavior, no attention span, no talking, very loose bowel movements, vomiting and red rosy cheeks. He also seemed to catch a cold at the drop of a hat. I tried what I thought was everything as far as feeding him a healthy diet but nothing seemed to help.

Having allergies of my own, far too many to mention, I started to eliminate certain foods to see if it could have been allergy related, and the only success I had with that was removing milk and changing to almond milk, which eliminated the diarrhea, but the other symptoms remained. We continued this battle for almost two years which was wearing all of us very thin. At age three and a half, there was still very cranky behavior and still no words would come out of his mouth.

I came across an article about coconut oil helping MS patients and ordered some immediately. Until its arrival, I continued to read all I could find about the oil and was more and more fascinated by it. As soon as it arrived, that jar was opened and I made my grandson some scrambled eggs, which was his favorite. He gobbled them down and went on his way. I was just very glad it didn’t change the taste enough that he wouldn’t eat it. He is very fussy. I didn’t tell anyone how I had altered his eggs, because I was only believing what I had read. This would be my proof. I am a bit of a health nut and sometimes my family and friends have a hard time dealing with it.

Well, the third day arrived. Matthew woke up and came downstairs for breakfast. I asked him if he wanted scrambled eggs, so I could feed him more coconut oil and he replied “Eggies, Mum” I almost fell on the floor. That day he just repeated everything I said. His daddy’s eyes just lit up when he came home from work and Matthew greeted him with a big hello. His crying fits and temper tatrums slowly disappeared as he stayed focused longer and longer. Slowly his little rosy cheeks gave way to a happy glowing face of a healthier 4 year old. At four and a half, he entered preschool and is the best behaved child in his class. He comes home reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing every song they learned in school. He is such an absolute joy to be around. My hat’s off to coconut oil. I don’t even want to imagine what this child’s life would be like without it.

Editor Comments: I asked Debra if her grandson had ever been diagnosed with anything that described his symptoms prior to beginning coconut oil. Her reply:

No, he was not.  The irratic behavior made me think autism, but I guess I was afraid of putting a label on it. I don’t have much faith in doctors and really didn’t want to start out this little guy’s life popping pills into him. I read every thing that I could get my hands on about treating it naturally and coconut oil was part of the remedy.

Baking Gluten Free Cookies with Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is one of the trickiest, if not the trickiest, most finicky, temperamental, fickle gluten free flour to work with. However, when you get it right, coconut flour baked goods will be some of the best you’ve ever had, gluten free or otherwise.

One of the hardest baked goods to transfer over to gluten free with coconut flour would be cookies. How do you do it? It’s either not the right texture, too crumbly, too dense, requires too many eggs or simply bakes up into sawdust.

Here are some proven tips to making successful coconut flour cookies based on three textures: crispy cookies, cakey cookies, chewy cookies. I include 10 kitchen-proven recipes to get you started.

Alzheimer’s Disease is a modern plague on the seniors in our society. More evidence continues to be published that Alzheimer’s is primarily a prescription drug induced disease. Coconut oil is an alternative to toxic drugs that has shown tremendous results in helping or even reversing Alzheimer’s disease. But your doctor will not likely know about either the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, or how coconut oil can help. Here is what you need to know.

Baking Soda & Coconut Oil Cleanser for Problem Skin

Using a facial cleanser as a part of your daily skin care ritual is one of the essential outward practices to maintaining clean, healthy skin. Many acne–fighting and exfoliating facial cleansers and masks contain little beads to help “polish” the skin by taking dead layers off, while a creamy and cleaning base should help moisturize and condition.

Instead of shelling out money and being wasteful in the process of trial and error in trying to find a product that works for your skin, try making it at home with only two ingredients you probably already have: coconut oil and baking soda. Not only are these two ingredients readily available, they are also highly effective in treating problematic skin. Unlike all the fillers and toxic ingredients in normal store-bought cosmetics, these two ingredients are not only safe for your skin, but safe to be eaten as well.

Once again, research into the health benefits of coconut oil is mainly being done outside of the U.S., primarily in coconut-producing countries. Here in the U.S., only pharmaceutical drugs can make health claims, by law. The FDA regulates all health claims, and only allows pharmaceutical companies that have gone through the lengthy and costly drug approval process to make such claims. No company in the U.S. would spend that kind of money on research for a product found in nature that cannot be patented.

A study just published in the journal Lipids in Health and Disease looked at Malaysian women suffering from breast cancer. The study discovered that stage 3 and 4 breast cancer women who supplemented their diet with virgin coconut oil during breast cancer treatment improved fatigue, dyspnea, sleep difficulties, and loss of appetite compared to the control group. Virgin coconut oil consumption during chemotherapy also helped improve the functional status and global Quality Of Life of these breast cancer patients. In addition, it reduced the symptoms related to side effects of chemotherapy.

Cold drinks are a popular summer staple that coffeehouses and restaurants make a killing off of every year with their ridiculous prices. However, there is little need to buy them. Making most of these drinks at home is easy, not to mention with far more healthy potential when you control what goes into them.

Adding coconut oil to your blended cold drinks is one way to get your daily dose of coconut oil without it being bothersome or boring. Not only that, but the addition of coconut oil will also give your endurance and energy a boost, keeping you going throughout the day or acting as a quick pick me up along with some natural fruit as the day drags on.
